FCS Seniors & National Merit Program 2017

March 29, 2017
By Admissions Office

Congratulations to Leon W., Daniel F., and Jocelyn S. on your accomplishments in the 2017 National Merit Program! These three students, part of our 63 student senior class, are in the top 4% of the nation.

In October 2015, students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screening of approximately 1.6 million juniors each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

Commended - Jocelyn S.

Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT test in October, only 34,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Commended. 

Semi-Finalist - Daniel F.

Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT test in October, only 16,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Semi-Finalist. 

Finalist - Leon W.

Of more than 1.6 million students who sat for the PSAT test in October, only 15,000 received the honor of being named National Merit Finalist. 

Daniel has been with FCS since 2015, while Jocelyn and Leon both qualify as 13 year students. Jocelyn started in 2004, and Leon has been with Fremont Christian School since 2002. Congratulations again to our Class of 2017 Seniors and all their accomplishments! 

Partnering with families to provide extraordinary education and genuine encounters with Jesus, all within a community of compassion.
